By default it pastes it as Impress 8. If you paste special - bitmap, you can crop. Not sure, if we are supposed to be able to crop these Impress 8 things?

Can Regina answer this question?

"Impress 8" produces an OLE. There crop is not needed, because it is done by the frame.

"Drawing Format" produces a shape. In Draw/Impress the command .uno:GrafAttrCrop contains the cropping. This command is not available in Writer. Therefore not the original image is inserted, but an image that only has the part, that remains after cropping. --> Feature request: Implement .uno:GrafAttrCrop for those shapes, that would be able to be cropped in Draw/Impress and then insert the shape in original size and crop it.

"GDI" contains an image wrapped into a vector format.
"Bitmap" contains an image directly.
Both "GDI" and "Bitmap" contain only the part, that remains after cropping. That has always been this way, so I would say it is more a feature request than a bug. I think, that the current behavior can be improved. The images can be inserted in original size and the same cropping as in Draw/Impress can then be applied automatically. For such images cropping is available in Writer as part of .uni:GraphicDialog. I don't know, whether the clipboard already contains the needed information.

Cropping is part of the style of family "Graphic" in file format. LibreOffice distinguishes between images as shapes and Writer-images, but nevertheless uses the same kind of style in file format, only naming one "gr" and the other "fr". Currently this distinction is necessary, because the capabilities of "Draw-Images" and "Writer-Images" are different.

The aim should be, to get rid of "Writer-Images". This issue belongs to this aim, regardless of naming it "bug" or "feature request".

This bug contains two problems, perhaps split it?

I cannot find a (Meta-)bug for removing Writer-images, but likely my search was bad. There should be one, because free rotation of images belongs to the same aim.

According to https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=112655#c1,
height and width can be changed in 6.0.

Could you please try to reproduce it with a master build from http://dev-builds.libreoffice.org/daily/master/ ?
You can install it alongside the standard version.
I have set the bug's status to 'NEEDINFO'. Please change it back to 'UNCONFIRMED' if the bug is still present in the master build

The cropping dialog is still not available for a image as Draw/Impress shape in Writer.
